Light citrus nose. Light citrus on a very well balanced palate . A delicious wine , a wonderful sister to its Chenin Blanc. Good with any light food, vegetarian, or sips and nosh.

Tremendous wine. I have actually fallen out of love with Paloma in the last couple of years. I'm not sure why, as I do feel it's a great price for the value you get, but I just haven't been drinking as much of it. I open this bottle, and I may have fell back in love. Great flavors, great nose and drinking very well. My hat is off to Sheldon!

Sadly over the hill. Loved these wines in their youth and felt they had potential to go the distance. All acid. What little fruit drops after about 10 minutes of air time. Very sad... DO NOT DECANT unless you're a necromancer.

    9/17/14, 7:39 PM - I have never had a bad bottle of the 06 and we have had many. You do realize that Mark is the only person in CA with a French clone and so it is a completely different experience than the one you get from a score chaser wine? The 06 is beautiful and gracious, not a Parkerized mouthful of monolithic grape juice, all bling and no subtlety (e.g. Kosta Browne). Maybe you should try again? Or explore Burgundy and come back to it?
